After months of speculation, it's official: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are married.  People magazine reports that the two, who've been dating for five years, have tied the knot in southern Italy.


In a statement to People, the happy couple said, "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."  The magazine will feature all the wedding details in its next issue, out Wednesday.

Timberlake and Biel got engaged last December in Montana.  Last month, Timberlake reportedly traveled to Las Vegas and Mexico for his bachelor party festivities.

This past week, Justin and Jessica were spotted in Italy ramping up to their big day with a series of small get-togethers with family and friends.  On Wednesday, they hosted a beach party with fireworks and music; on Thursday, People reports, they had another party, which featured guests sitting around open fires, dining on local cheeses and wine.
